Overview Youth and Scholastic Programs

***We now have the schedule for our fall youth programs! 


Fall 2019 NLWC Programs

Fitness and Balance (September 30 - October 21)

Time: Mondays, 6pm - 6:45pm

Location: Penn State Wrestling Room

Age: Pre-School – Grade 3

Cost: $20

Description: The program will provide children (both boys and girls) an opportunity to participate in a dynamic and fun workout. The emphasis will be on basic body movements, using a wide variety of drills and games. This program will help children develop balance, strength, and confidence in different body movements. Although this program will take place in the wrestling room, wrestling skills and techniques will not be taught, and there will be no actual wrestling contact. The main goal of the program will be to have fun!

For those who wish to do so, this program will be excellent preparation for first-year wrestlers to begin actual elementary wrestling practice in the NLWC Youth Rec Wrestling Program.


Youth Rec Program (October 24 – November 23)

Time: Thursday, 6:00pm-7:00pm

           Saturdays, 9:00am-10:00am

***If practice would be cancelled because of weather or a conflict with another event at the 

University, there will be no rescheduling.  

Location: Penn State Wrestling Room

Age: Grades K-6 (Beginning Wrestlers)

Cost: $60

          ***Each participant gets a NLWC Youth Rec Program T-shirt.

Description: Wrestling is a great foundation for all sports. It teaches the fundamental skills (balance, hand eye coordination, footwork, strength, etc.) necessary for any other physical activity. This recreational program is non-competitive. It will focus on exposing your child to wrestling and these basic skills, setting the groundwork for future sports and activities. Our goal is to ensure they have a fun and a positive first experience with the sport. We want the kids leaving the program excited about wrestling. There will be one practice and one match per week for six weeks.

*All Programs will take place in the Lorenzo Wrestling Complex in Rec Hall. Parking is available at the Nittany Lion Inn parking deck or in the Red A parking lot across Atherton street off of White Course Drive.
